Removing the Baseboards and Checking out the Hardwood Floors

Well, yesterday I removed a number of baseboards in the upstairs rooms so that I could pull up the carpet and get started on our long weekend (which includes technical rehearsal and a good chunk of tomorrow getting ready for tech, sadly). The hardwood floors look pretty good so far, so I think we'll be refinishing them instead of carpeting (which is what I wanted!). The previous owners built a wall on top of the carpet, however. Very strange. Getting it out, shimming up the wall that we're keeping, and taking out the wall we're not will take up quite a little bit of our time.

My actors are pretty much awesome!

I worry about how well I'm doing, but my actors are doing extremely well! There's the bumps that every rehearsal process seems to have, but things are on the up-and-up...which is good since we open next friday and have an audience on Wednesday! Here's a couple of pictures from early-on in the rehearsal process.

The Home is a Go!

We signed our paperwork friday and are eagerly awaiting the return of it from Wyoming where the sellers are living. Everything's smack-on for Tueday and we'll get the keys then. Then we get to figure out if we are going to be finishing the hardwood floors ourselves or paying someone big bucks to do it professionally (but without all the strained backs and aches and pains). We are still looking at taking out a living room wall as long as it is not a weight-bearing wall. Considering it looks like they jurry rigged the wall in the first place, I don't think it is. But we will see. If so, we'll be demolishing it and adding in floor pieces and continuing on the rest of the floor. We know that we will be carpeting the master bedroom, but we also need to see about the cost of the floors.

We will be moving stuff from our storage unit into the basement regardless. We have a good chunk of the apartment packed and ready to go as well. Once we have a good estimate on the completion of the floors (either us or them), we can hire the piano movers to get Marni's baby grand into the house.

We are getting a washer and dryer from my cousin and a different refrigerator from another cousin. One Tuesday, we're going to be going through the house and itemizing everything that we need. Whoo-hoo!

Well, the house looks good to go…

The underwriter is working on our paperwork and the appraisal is in. Everything is looking good so far and we should be able to close in a matter of days! I so can't wait! Well, okay, I can always wait to sand and finish hardwood floors. That's just nasty, but at least they'll be our hardwood floors this time!

We're going to be gifted a washer/dryer and refrigerator for the first winter so that we can finance our shiny new sweet stuff down the road (and pay off the floors and painting!).

But for right now, things are looking great!

Guitar Hero World Tour – YouTube Edition (long; 84ish songs)

I'm quite excited about GHWT, and after playing RB2 a bit this weekend, I'm *really* excited about more music and fun to get my faux Rock Star fix. I've tried to compile videos of all of the songs listed in the official release for GHWT. Some of the challenge songs are not available on YouTube, but it will give people a good idea of what is there and to say "oh, it's *that* song!"

RockBand 2 Track List – The YouTube Edition (84 tracks)

Like all of my RB blogs here, I'll post up YouTubes of the various videos (as long as they have videos).

These are the tracks that are coming out on the RockBand 2 disc this Sunday. It's pretty long since it is 84 tracks of YouTube! The only song that doesn't have a YouTube video is GNR's Sheckler's Revenge.

Peace Sells But Who’s Buying – Megadeth available 9/16/2008 for RB and RB2

With the imminent release of RockBand 2 this weekend, Harmonix is upping the release ante after the embarrassment of not releasing Moving Pictures. Not only are they releasing four singles from Panic at the Disco, The Cab, Plain White T's, and Dashboard Confessional, but are also releasing the entire album Peace Sells But Who's Buying by Megadeth. This release has me excited because it takes me back to my junior high school mullet days growling into my fist in my basement.
